Colonel Tibbets’ “Office”

Check out the 360 degree image of the cockpit of the Enola Gay, the B-29 aircraft that the dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Be sure to pan around and use the zoom feature as well. Interesting stuff, right there.

Got it from Catfish.

Bulb Meets Bulb.

Hello there.

Maybe you didn’t hear me; I said, “Hello.”

I heard you, but I don’t have to be polite to you, because as of next year, you’re toast, and I’ll be the only game in town.

Why is that?

The government says you’re bad for the environment.

That’s crazy. I’m comprised of glass and a tiny metal filament. I come on instantly in all kinds of weather, and I’ve been lighting homes and businesses for more than one-hundred years. If I break, one needs only to sweep up the glass and put it in the trash. You, on the other hand, don’t come on instantly, you cause epileptic seizures in some people and you contain mercury, with the result being that if you break, one has to call a hazmat team to clean up and properly dispose of the toxic mess.

You’re killing the polar bears.

You must be a democrat.

Your Tax Dollars at Work.

Did you know that The One’s administration is spending millions of dollars of your money to make improvements to mosques in foreign countries? We are also paying to provide internet access and computer hardware use by imams in foreign countries. It’s true.

If that doesn’t piss you off, you’re beyond help.

I’m fairly sure I’ve posted this before, but I’m too lazy to find it. Anyway, Ken, my friend and bodyguard, sent this to me today, and I watched all of it again, amazed by what these guys do for a living. I don’t have a morbid fear of heights, but …… whoa!

Quite a roster, I’d say.

Thanks to reader, Dave.

Denny on the Slopes.

Check out this great video of my buddy (and the only-slightly-younger half of the “Elderly Brothers”) Denny, skiing. He has been doing this for at least as long as I’ve known him, which is something like seven years. When he’s not skiing, guitar playing, partying, driving all over the country or scuba diving, he’s a monster blogger. Pretty farookin’ good for a guy who doesn’t have the use of his legs.

Denny describes the above video here.

Sometimes My Soul Needs Some Old Dion.

I can’t believe that I’ve never heard this song until today. I love the video.

Here he is doing the song live and reading the lyrics. From the comments, it appears that he co-wrote the tune. On his Facebook page, he wonders whether this was a rehearsal. Great stuff.

Great googa-mooga! Here is is singing with the Great Phil Everly. Be still my heart.

Too much of it today to even think about blogging.

That is all.

Off theTop of my Cruller.

There once was a man called “The One,”
Who thought to himself, “This is fun.”
With a wave of my hand, I can screw up this land
That’s because I am God’s other son.

Behold the First Lady Michelle,
Who’s shaped like the Liberty Bell.
Her sweaters don’t fit, she dresses like shit
And I’m sure those size tens really smell.

Doubleplusungood: A Day in the Park.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 8:12 pm

Finding this online was somewhat timely, because I have been re-reading George Orwell’s 1984. I originally read it when I was something like sixteen. To the extent that I can recall my reaction to the book at the time, I believe I simply thought, “Cool book, cool story.”

Now, forty plus some years later, having witnessed the ever-increasing size and seemingly unbridled power of the federal government, I find that the book is more than a little bit chilling.
